Kid Mud Covers Justin Timberlake

Kid Mud has posted another cover on his MySpace for free download. This time he takes on Justin Timberlake's "My Love." Kid tells us that he has wanted to cover this song for a long time, initially just "so I could do it at karaoke and the ladies would love me." Like his other songs released thus far, "My Love" was recorded on his Mac in that studio he calls home. He describes the process:
When I recorded it, I just dumped the song into my studio so I could get the structure and the backbone of the song down. I cut up the main keyboard by recording one of the sounds and the matching it to the swells in the wav of the actual song. I didn't use the real song at all - just as a guide. I really wanted to use a vocoder for Timbaland's part, but I couldn't find one so I used the mac voice instead. There is huge rap at the end and I'm terrible at rapping so I just added a couple lines and did a fantasy keyboard solo instead.
